Hi folks!

Captain America has fought many enemies over the years, and a surprising number of them have also been "Captain America." These twisted reflections of our hero represent America's fear that we aren't who we want to be, the best of the America spirit. Instead, they are distorted by hatred and greed, the America we do not want to be.

This is the story of one such man, Fifties Cap. This story is from Captain America #155 in 1972; six pages of twenty.

The man who would be Steve Rogers )

WHAT IF #4 is one of the few stories (if not the only story) that turned out to be part of the "actual history" of the Marvel Universe.

A robot duplicate of the senatorial candidate! )

In The Incredible Hulk #143-144, Dr. Doom kidnaps and brainwashes Bruce Banner in hopes of Bruce making him a gamma bomb. But, like a lot of Incredible Hulk stories, #144 shifts the focus onto a different protagonist: Doom's love interest Valeria, who is also an unwilling guest.
...and Valeria is NHF Doom's shenanigans )

In 1968 Marvel created a fantastic character called Yuri Brevlov, who was basically the USSR's Nick Fury. He and Fury had a Team Up in the Incredible Hulk. It was awesome. Then, Marvel pretty much forgot about him (I could only track down a small appearance in the 80s).

Marvel needs to bring this man back. I will show you why.

After Crisis on Infinite Earths, the backgrounds of many characters were changed, some subtly, others blatantly. This made it a good idea to have a title that explained the new secret origins of DC's characters. This series was entitled "Secret Origins."

The Creeper story was not one of Giffen's better art jobs, so let's concentrate on the Alan Scott Green Lantern tale. Seven pages of 22, and an ad.

Some pages from MARVEL PREMIERE #1 after the cut, which featured the naming of Adam Warlock, and what I'd like to see if they use Adam Warlock in the Marvel Cinema-verse.

And men shall call him... )

For Gene Colan Week, here are is a page from a 10-page Black Widow story in AMAZING ADVENTURES #5 (when she shared the book with the Inhumans). The story was reprinted and recolored in a Marvel Black Widow hardcover a few years ago. In fact, it is the original page and the recolored page that I'd like to compare and contrast.
NSFW due to something not being totally concealed.

The overpriced beehive. )

I was wondering what to post for this tribute, it's not like there's a dearth of material, and I posted the Batman/Vampire stuff before, but then I remembered one particular story which might be of special interest on s_d, from Gentleman Gene's run on Wonder Woman.

Amongst his many other achievements is one that might go unnoticed; the 1982 introduction of the first major change to Wonder Woman's costume (other than her depowered civvies era) in... well, ever.

It was published, of all places as a comic within a comic within DC Comics Presents #41 (Superman teams up with the Joker in a story that's not without it's charms, but isn't directly relevant here)

What might the W stand for do you think? )

Greetings all! Reading through some old issues of Conan the Barbarian, Spider-Man and Batman pencilled by Gil Kane, I've picked up a trend in his artwork, and I'd like to share it with you guys to get an idea of how well-known this trend is.

Now, what is that trend? The long and short of it is this:

This particular shot, drawn from a low angle and highlighting the bottom of people's noses.

More nasal fun, under the cut )

DISCLAIMER: I have nothing against Gil Kane and his art (I wouldn't have put effort into scanning and cropping these if I really disliked it), just intrigued by the prevalence of this particular shot and focus on the nose in general.

So, months or so ago, I posted the first appearances of the Black Widow, Silver Age super-villain. Her character arc continued in the pages of Avengers. I don't know, I guess I find Marvel women in the Silver Age particularly fascinating because that era has such a bad reputation.

Treachery! Aliens! The first meeting of Fury and the Black Widow! )

And I haven't forgotten about Tigra. I'll be posting part two of that once I come back from the comic shop.

Greetings True Believers! Conan of Cimmeria is well-known for settling arguments with his sword or axe but did you also know his words are as powerful as his thews? Watch as Conan makes an entire village go "Oh, Snap!" and puts a prideful wench in her place!

Plus as an added treat, a great piece of Conan art by Neal Adams!

Conan the Barbarian was in a number of wonderful stories in Marvel grand old What If series. So I selected my favorites and now I present them for your pleasure. By Crom, you shall enjoy it!
